Blindfolded hide and seek

For this game, you'll need at least four players but the more players you have the better. There's no upper limit. You'll need a blindfold so it will be best to play outside in a wide open space. The game will be best for kids ages 4-8.

To start off, pick one player to go first. Blindfold him or her and if they are old enough, spin them in a circle a few times to disorient them a little bit.

Then they have to try and find the other players. They should do this by holding their arms out while the others try to avoid them.

When someone is found, the blindfolded player must guess who it is. If they are successful, then that player is now blindfolded. If they don't guess correctly, they have to remain blindfolded and try again.

The game has no winning or losing. It's over when everyone has a turn being blindfolded. Remember to supervise the game as well so no one goes out of the boundaries.

Here are a few more things to keep in mind. First of all, make sure the players are okay with being blindfolded. Secondly, whenever you blindfold someone, make sure they can't see anything. Finally, if anyone playing has got glasses, you will want to take them when he or she gets blindfolded.
